A Moroccan Affair

June 9, 2014

Although it’s at the very top of my travel wish list, I have never been to Morocco. Neither has Karen nor Todd. So we were beyond excited when our friends at Project Bly brought Morocco to us last week. If you’re not familiar with this oh so inspiring online destination and you are as consumed by wanderlust as we are, I would seriously consider bookmarking their site immediately! The team at Project Bly travels the world, searching for the world’s best markets and most far flung artisans, to curate rotating collections of objects, textiles, art and jewelry – all while allowing us to live vicariously through their journeys in the form of photography and video. Back to our Moroccan feast. Moroccan chef Zouhair Karam put together a delightful spread of chicken tagine, salad, and mint tea to be enjoyed with sweets, dried fruits and nuts. Berber rugssilver tea traysbread basketsvintage tea potstea glasses and tadelakt bowls were laid out beautifully. For an brief but lasting moment, we were all transported to Marrakech. And it was lovely. Stay tuned for some Moroccan inspired recipes coming to you this week!

Very beautiful post ! I’m moroccan and i just wanted to say that sometimes the are stereotypes about what we eat, this is Lebanese bread ! we make bread at home here ! everything else about the meal is very representative, I hope you enjoyed this delicious looking tagine !
You are very welcome to Morocco

Yes please! I backpacked through much of North Africa and Algeria and Morocco left me in awe, as did the pyramids of course. Loving this little gathering you all designed and Caitlin is a star! Hope this is followed by a recipe! Can’t wait to try 🙂
